17.01.2024 Harvard Business Review on “How to Improve Your Soft Skills as a Remote Worker”
Dear Students,
 
To us at Mandarin Consulting international, it’s really no surprise that “According to a recent LinkedIn survey, 72% of U.S. executives place more value on soft skills than AI-related skills.” Yet, some of the recommendations in this article, including honing an aspiring professional’s powers of observation and asking for feedback, may be particularly useful for you, whether or not you work remotely (and even if you haven’t begun your career!). The author’s suggestions also reflect the value of taking initiative, which is essential to your professional success within a global company.
 
 
As such competencies are increasingly and rightly being called “power skills,” (please see: https://joshbersin.com/2019/10/lets-stop-talking-about-soft-skills-theyre-power-skills/ ), here’s wishing you a “powerful” day.
